We align the jam cleat part inline with the life lines, so nothing extends beyond the life lines.

On the pier

I hang my fenders on the pier. It keeps them out of the way, and I don't have to mess with them underway. Why aren't you all as smart as me?

Seems like the mods beat me to it.
Sounds like a neat idea, but I too am concerned about the wretched thieves

What do you do if you have to stop at a different marina or the fuel dock, or the pumpout station, or have to raft up to someone???

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Many clubs and marinas do not allow anything hung/installed on the docks & pilings.

Nice work, JRP. Bluddy sock puppets with their viral marketing, piddle on the lot of them.

Dictated, but not read.

Hanging on the pier

I have extra fenders on board that I can drop over the side and hang from the toe rail (with a knot) at a moment's notice. And that is one of the good things about my nearly devoid of service marina: within bounds of reason, small cleats and eyebolts which do not permanently alter the slip are allowed.
